The 48-year old ex-Congressman sure has a difficult time staying out of the media spotlight, and he’s been on the cover of the Daily News and New York Post more times than he’d probably like. But despite a second sexting scandal (the first being in 2011 when he resigned from Congress) and numerous calls to drop out of the mayor’s race, Anthony Weiner continues his run for the New York City throne.

It would seem as though announcing his candidacy would be unnecessary.

Less than two years after having to resign his House seat following a highly-publicized online scandal, Anthony Weiner is among the leading candidates of a contentious New York City mayoral race.

Should he enter the Democratic primary race for mayor today, Weiner would be supported by 15 percent of registered Democrats in New York City, according to an NBC New York-Marist poll released Tuesday. Christine Quinn is the only candidate that leads him with 26 percent of the votes.
